Small interactions when we’re intentional can really turn someone’s day around, can’t they. I love going to the shop with some of the children in my family, because when we go to leave, they always say to the person at the checkout, ‘Thank you. Hope you have a good day’. The majority of the time, this elicits, the biggest smile from the person serving. Some are even quite taken back, by those few simple words.
It’s funny how we’ve over-complicated prayer; how we’ve made it a ‘thing’, where we feel intimidated at the thought of praying out loud for someone. And yet prayer is truly one of the simplest and most beautiful gifts we can offer someone. To speak our own honest words to God, for someone, to bless, encourage, comfort, and strengthen. The goal is not to ‘get it right’ – the goal is to ‘keep it real’.
Even Jesus had three closest friends (armour bearers) in Peter, James and John who walked most closely with Him in both the best and worst of times. This is why we’re passionate about everybody in the Zeo family being part of a small huddle of friends who do life and faith together. Three to four people who connect regularly to encourage, strengthen, challenge and commit to journey together.
Bubble wrap is one of the most popular protective packaging solutions available. It is an extremely effective way of protecting fragile items during shipping, moving, and storing due to its soft cushioning. Designed to protect everything from small, lightweight items too large, fragile products… Not only is bubble wrap perfect for protecting items, but it also makes a good insulator.
God’s vision for every single person is one of ongoing healing, wholeness and restoration. He is calling us into a reality of wellbeing for people and the planet, and each one of us has a part to play and a response to make.
Here are a few minutes of solidarity and calm, a moment of headspace to acknowledge pain but also hold on the fact that Love remains, is present and can hold us through the uncertainties and loss.
A few minutes of calm reflection and headspace if the quieter Christmas season feels very busy in your head and heart this year.
Join us for a moment of headspace in the run-up to Christmas.
This year all feeling a bit too much, like you are close to your limits? Please join us for some moments in Advent to slow down, take a breath and find some calm again.
